Payment of account

Barrells Funeral Directors Ltd operates a pricing policy in compliance with the Code of Practice of the Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors.

Our price list provides clients with a full and detailed explanation of our charges as required by the Code. In addition to our charges, disbursements must be paid to Doctors, Minister of Religion, Cemetery or Cremation fees and such like.

When the funeral arrangements are completed you will be given a written estimate of all the charges incurred for the services you have requested.  We respectfully request that all fees are to be paid prior to the funeral service taking place.  If you are using the services of a Solicitor please speak to our Funeral Director who will advise you accordingly.

If, because of your circumstances, you have to make a claim for assistance from the Department of Work and Pensions, please note that stringent rules apply as to the amount of help available. Please talk to us, in confidence, for guidance.

Right to Cancel
(Arrangements made in the client’s home only)

You have the right to cancel the contract if you wish. This right can be exercised by sending or taking a cancellation notice to the funeral director at any time within the period of 14 days starting on the date of the arrangement.

The right to cancel will be lost during the cancellation period if the service is provided in full before the 14 days. Where applicable, payment may be required to be made in respect of any services carried out or disbursements paid, once the performance of the contract has begun and prior to the cancellation notice being received.
